The jersey is a good gesture, looks ridiculous though.

i don't think it's a good gesture at all. I think it's a bad attempt by MLSE or whatever corporation owns our team now to make money by the facade of standing behind some noble cause. Honestly, the only reason extra jerseys are introduced is so that they can be sold to the public. I also hate the idea of mixing war/politics with sports. Hate it.

TORONTO -- The Toronto Raptors will play in camouflage jerseys in four games this upcoming season to honor Canada's military.

The Raptors announced Wednesday that they would debut alternate jerseys with a green camo background on March 21 when they host the Chicago Bulls on the team's annual Canadian Forces night.

Toronto will also wear camouflage for home games on March 26 against the Orlando Magic, on April 1 versus the Washington Wizards and again on April 16 against the Atlanta Hawks.

I agree with Trane, and not only because he took Benzo to school. Sports is sports, political agenda should be left out of it. If they wanted to support Victims of War it would be different.


Somebody up top is imposing their own agenda and beliefs on thousands of people through a medium which should be free of any of the such.

Here we go...

While I am attending The "school for the pretensious and enlightened" being turned into a crumudgion of historic proportions, I would simply like to state that the more likeley scenario was

"hey let's make these jerseys, they will make lots of money and we can say we are supporting the military"

Instead of

"dear illuminous leader, we will make the jersey's, and when the children gaze upon them, they will lust for blood"

don't you hate it at the ACC when a soldier who just returned from duty gets pointed out and receives a nice round of applause? What's jerks MLSE are.

Yeah, fans will be rushing out to scoop these up. Lmao

If they wanted to "rake in the dough" they would have retro purple jersey's and sell those. Which imo isn't far off. I think in the next couple years you'll see some kind of retro purple jersey incorporated somehow.

Some people will like and I'm sure buy the camo jerseys. They may look better in person than in picture.

But I have a feeling that part of the cash made will go to some veterans fund or something to do with the military. Not sure, but it wouldn't surprise me in the least.
